    Heart goes out to Kelly. Brutalized, victimized.
    Hope she gets some training.

    The articles did state she had a gun and ammo in the house. Apparently it was not secured when she was not there however.

    I'm just glad that she is taking this route rather than demand guns be banned.

    I know someone who's son dates a very popular hollywood actress.

    She is almost a prisoner in her own home. Can't leave the house without an entourage of armed security. Some are ex-special forces. Her property is patrolled by no less than 6-12 bodyguards at all times.
    Before that She was in her home when a crazed guy broke in and tried to get to her luckily she had a panic room and hide inside until the police came

    It's always the hollywood and rich crying about gun control.
    To bad all of us normal people can't afford our own army and pentagon style panic rooms.

    I still think all the people crying about gun control need to live unarmed and without security in the worst neighborhood of their state. Then preach about how you don't need a weapon.

    This does kinda beg the question though... Assuming she had a gun in this instance and did in fact use it on the woman who broke in and attacked her, how solid would her legal footing be in using deadly force against her?

    According to NC law, which does have "Castle Doctrine"
    In this case she got some 'scratches and bruises' according to the article. Would she have shot her AFTER receiving these, what are the chances of a jury deciding force was necessary but not deadly force?

    This sort of thing is what I tried to study about for months before buying my first gun. I am still extremely nervous about the possibility I might be put away for defending myself in my own home. Washington doesn't have an official "castle doctrine" but our laws are more of a defacto version of it.

    I think with the knowledge of having firearms and ammo in the house and the fear the people had those would be enough. She had reasonable fear for her life.

    However it would have been sad after the fact knowing she had a child with her
